Thread Name: BS: Summary: Bush Foreign Policy
Subject: RE: BS: Summary: Bush Foreign Policy
A lot of Americans need to believe that their husbands, children, friends, etc. are fighting for something. I buy cookies from a woman whose daughter is in Iraq. She decorates her table with flags. She doesn't want to believe that her daughter's life is on the line to make Dick Cheney more money.
Go through the blue collar neighborhoods, and you'll see the flags, the ribbons and the signs, because their kids are over there fighting, and they need, desperately, to believe that they're fighting for freedom, not oil.
